I usually don't get bugged by the retarted emails that go around compairing women and men, but this one just bugged me...
WHY MEN ARE NEVER DEPRESSED: Men Are Just Happier People --
Your last name stays put.
I know a number of women who kept their own last name. I only gave mine up when I married because I was tired of people mispelling it.
The garage is all yours.
My whole house is mine. As in, mine is the only name on the deed.
Wedding plans take care of themselves.
I'm betting you've never been married.
Chocolate is just another snack.
That depends on the person, if you don't like chocolate then it isn't.
You can never be pregnant.
Two words, Fuck you. Since you can never get pregnant, you don't get to tell me what to do when I get pregnant.
Car mechanics tell you the truth.
My mechanic tells me the truth, that's why I go to him. I'm not stupid about cars, I know when a mechanic is lying to me.
The world is your urinal.
Well, that's disgusting. Thanks!
You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
Neither do I. Just because I'm a girl doesn't make me stupid.
Same work, more pay.
Ah, how sexist.
Wrinkles add character.
They add character on women too. So does grey hair. Are you saying you don't like older women?
People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.
That really does bother me, I am 5 foot and have big boobs, and I'm willing to bet most men don't know I wear glasses.
New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
Neither do mine. If they mangle my feet I take them back.
One mood all the time.
Really? What mood?
Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
I don't even pick up the damn phone most of the time.
You know stuff about tanks and engines.
I know stuff about Roman and Greek war tactics, and can fight with a sword, what's your point?
A five-day holiday requires only one suitcase.
I'm sure it does when you travel by yourself.
You can open all your own jars.
I can too, big freaking deal.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
If you're such a terrible person this applies to you, you probably shouldn't brag about it.
Your underwear is £9.50 for a three-pack.
Ok, I tried to convert this and my caculator states this is equal to about $15 USD. I have no idea if that is how much men's undies cost in teh UK, but I assure you I would never pay anything close to that for a three pack.
Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
I know a few men who would consider that to be one pair too many. Watch what you say, my friend.
You never have strap problems in public.
Neither do I, because I buy underwear that fits.
You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.
I can't either, it's called wash and wear.
Everything on your face stays its original colour.
What? Oh, and I know guys who wear makeup. Straight guys.
The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.
The reason why you are probably single is becoming clear.
You only have to shave your face and neck.
Yeah, I could shave a lot less than that, I chose to shave my legs and pits.
You can play with toys all your life.
Buddy, I still play with toys, they are just bigger now.
One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one colour for all seasons.
You said a few items ago three pairs of shoes. Which is it?
You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look.
I have a case of contact dermititis on my leg, I still wear shorts.
You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife.
You have freedom of choice concerning growing a moustache.
On a personal note, I hate a mustache on a guy. Also, I know women who could grow one if they so chose.
You can do Christmas shopping for 24 relatives on 24th December in 24 minutes.
And I'm sure you would if the rest of this list applied to you.
This is less about why men get depressed, which is a very real problem, and more about a list of why men are "better" than women. I have known men that fit most of the items on this list and I assure you they are not "better". And if you act like this around this woman your chance of getting laid has gone to zero, which may depress you, depending on how much you want to see the aforementioned boobs.
This kind of thing not only promotes the idea that women are shallow and stupid, but it also promotes the idea that men are heartless jackasses, and I would hope that men out there would be against that.
